HEALTH WARNING:  We will not be held responsible for eye damage if you don't wear shades to look at this coin !!! An absolutely incredible BLAST of cartwheel lustre swirling around the almost flawless, highly polished fields set off the satin-white details.  If EVER a coin deserved a PL...

Take a look at the photo - it says all that needs to be said.  Top of the Pops and then some  - not much short of a DCAM.  But then, PCGS can't give a DCAM grade to such a flashy coin ..... Forget the KM value for a "normal" Proof !

When producing the Rentenmark coins, it appears that none of the mints made any effort to match the quality achieved during the German Empire period, especially the mint at Berlin. Typical of these coins, the planchet is of a rough finish, but the striking has brought out the mirrors just...

The mint at Karlsruhe is not known for especially high-quality Proofs during this period, especially for currency coins. This Proof is especially sharp and contrasty with only a few stray hair-lines.  There is a light sheen across the fields from die-cleaning, giving the coin an extra...

Despite the large mintage, most of the 1939 coins never found their way into circulation as nickel was a valuable war commodity, so most of them were kept in reserve and eventually re-melted. This coin is bright and well-struck, with no bag-marking visible to the naked eye.  The lustre is...

The copper-nickel alloy used for these coins did not lend itself well to striking proofs.  The mint at Munich did an OK job but nothing spectacular.  (We have never seen a Proof of this coin from Munich which would qualify for a CAM grade.) This example has nice contrast.  There is a...

The VERY high portrait of Albert makes these circulation issues VERY hard to find in higher grades. This unsually pretty coin has NO major problems visible to the naked eye.  The lustre is full and swirls beautifully.  A tiny bit of cabinet shine is perhaps what keeps this coin down a...

These Rentenpfennig coins are notorious for poor quality, especially those from Stuttgart and Hamburg. This one is surprisingly sharp and not "mushy", the colour is almost as bright as the day it left the mint.  The surface shows the usual slight porosity typical of these, but all of it...

A cooool little coin !  As usual with this metal, there are some miniscule spots of porosity on the surface.  This coin has an even, overall amber toning which enhances the otherwise bland colour of these coins.  True cameo proofs of ALL nickel coins are RARE and the "+" emphasises just...

The big fat "20" and the open fields are easy prey for contact with other coins.  This one is amazingly clean with strong swirling lustre.  Some golden-brown toning gives this example a most attractive appearance, unusual for coins struck in this otherwise dull metal.
